Challenging and complex game requiring teamwork, communications, and rapid decision making, (as well as a basic understanding of the mechanics of the game) in order to be at all successful in multiplayer.
Unfortunately the game is irretrievably broken due to the following;
-If you own a modern computer with a reasonably up-to-date OS, you are going to struggle to get this game to run. (see other reviews, forums, etc)
-game is showing it's age graphically, and there is no possibility whatsoever of any kind of patch, update, or even technical support.
-Collapsing player base makes it difficult to find active online servers. Currently there are about 1000 players total distributed worldwide. East coast USA prime time usually has one server active, same with Euro prime time, and you are usually going to have to wait to get a game. Anywhere else and you are going to see nothing but empty servers unless you stay up until 3 in the morning.
-Toxic "community" that is very unwelcoming to new players, and even established ones. Great if you enjoy verbal abuse, insults, racial and sexual slurs, and ragers on the mic. Check the Massgate forums if you want a sample of how the "community" act towards one another.
I've played this game for years and at times really enjoyed it. In it's current state I can't recommend it to anyone looking to have any fun, because currently, it's just not. I've uninstalled it, as the "good old days" for this game, have, sadly, come and gone.
